Back from Barthelona

Hi friends,

After a crazy day of travels, Bis and I returned from our Barcelona adventures last night.

Quick recap: woke up, spent last 2 euros on a metro ticket to the train station, didn’t have enough money between us to get train tickets and the ATM didn’t work so we had to scramble to find one, got tickets, got to the airport in time to miss our flight due to bad signage, long lines and confusion.  Luckily, we were able to get on the next flight to New York.  I was slightly worried we’d be staying overnight, or something crazy like that. On the plane I sat next to a less than pleasant smelling man and watched Wolverine, State of Play, 30 Rock, and listened to lots of music.  I’m surprisingly awake and raring to go considering the lack of sleep and food.

It feels good to be back.  Although I was just getting used to awkward gesture conversations mixed with bits of English Spanish and Catalan.  The first large ad we saw coming into the corridor in JFK made me feel right at home (I wish I’d taken a photo), 3 pictures, the first- a pageant winner, second- the moon landing, third- someone tying their shoes, with the word “accomplishment” underneath.  Fantastic.  I love America.

Best parts of the trip were the food, beach and making friends with some kind journalist/advertising people.  I hope you were following my tweets for all the photos of delicious treats and other good times.

At the moment I’m in Holland, so I have yet to be home home and see the fam, pups and make a long awaited PB&J with the fancy jam I got.  Among other things, I shall also indulge in NPR, running, and trying to find some work.

Stay tuned for our trip video.
